Essex Inspirations

Essex members met up again recently to discuss how members advance work from inspiration into finished pieces. It was fascinating to see the different sources which inspired members and how many different ways the finished work was achieved, the diversity of the world of textile art never ceases to amaze. The main problem of the day was that it passed much too quickly and we ran out of time. (And of course there was cake -Helen's chocolate orange one - yum!)
So there will be two more meetings very soon.

December will see a day called 'Material Dilemmas' and the end of January will start the new year with a bang when we visit a member's home for a 'Danish Smorgasbord'.
Details of the two events will available shortly from Chris , the Essex rep . or via the monthly Essex news sheet.
